Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Aglaonema 'Silver Bay' after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
I’ve had her for a ling time and was technically my first plant so that says enough about how strong she is. It is very obvious now when she is and isn’t happy with me but will always be my favorite. She is an extremely fast grower and when i see a new bud from the soil or leave coming in then i know she is happy with me. I did have to do a lot of cutting down on her recently but ive kept her in the same small pot to keep from buying a smaller pot for the time being. That being said a lot of her dirt is exposed and will draw in the gnats that fly around the top of the soil. I recommend watering from the bottom for any plant with a lit of exposed soil.
When I bought this the plant seller told me that it’s a great plant for low light and can survive in artificial light (so a great office plant!) So far, I’ve kept mine in an area in my apartment that doesn’t get much light and it’s already sprouted new leaves. Once I get to go back to my office I’ll take her with me and see if she holds up to the task at my desk!
